The “Monthly Dividend Company”
Realty Income pays a dividend every month. It aggressively markets itself to retail investors as the “Monthly Dividend Company.”

Short Thesis: Investment Highlights

Short Thesis: Investment Highlights

Poor tenant quality
 High concentration of discretionary retail tenants (casual dining restaurants,

movie theaters, day care centers, etc…)
 Junk or unrated credits, many with bankruptcy potential

Properties often have limited alternative use and high re-leasing risk
 Unlike prime shopping center locations, Realty Income’s standalone locations

generally lack anchor tenants to drive traffic and assist in re-leasing

O’s profitability is levered to occupancy
 We believe the current 97% occupancy rate will decline due to tenant

 Realty Income is responsible for all expenses (taxes, insurance) and capital

expenditures associated with a vacant property until it is re-leased
 A decrease in occupancy could materially impact NOI

Investment Highlights (cont’d)

  

Balance sheet assets doubled from 1/1/05 – 12/31/07
 O was a leveraged lender to private equity during the real estate and credit


Dividend coverage is minimal
 If O misses its dividend, the Company’s reason for being is in question

O trades at a substantial–and we believe unjustified–premium to private market valuations
 Asking prices for properties similar to O’s are at a 10%-11% cap rate  We don’t believe that O shareholders are being paid appropriately for tenant risk

 

We believe that the “monthly dividend” marketing tactic has created demand for O stock from retail investors who may not value the company appropriately At a 9.5% Cap Rate and a 7.5% decline in NOI, Realty Income would have a stock price of ~$14 (down ~46%)

Tenants: O Does Not Disclose Its Tenants
 Unlike many other REITs, Realty Income does not disclose its tenants
 Simon Property Group, for example, discloses tenants representing as little

as 0.2% of its minimum rental income

 Limited transparency as to:
 Names of tenants  Credit of tenants  Average credit rating of total tenant pool  Individual tenant contribution to revenue

Analysts and investors have asked for more tenant disclosure, but the Company has refused QUESTION: Why? ANSWER: We believe that O’s tenant quality is poor and the company is concerned about the impact of transparency on its stock price

Tenants: O Does Not Disclose Its Tenants
Q1 2009 Earnings Call Q2 2009 Earnings Call

Analyst: “I was just wondering if the RV dealer, Camping World, that's at that 1.2 times, 1.22 times [EBITDAR-to-rent coverage] at the low end, if they're one of the ones that only discloses annually? I was just surprised to see that that 1.22 didn't move.” Company Representative: “Right. We do not discuss the individual business of tenants, so I wouldn't comment to that.” Analyst: “Okay.” Company Representative: “And we never referred to them as that tenant.”

Analyst: “The other thing is Rite Aid announced that they're seeking rent relief on 500 stores earlier this quarter -- or I guess in the second quarter. Of the 24 Rite Aids that are in your portfolio, do you have any exposure? I mean it's obviously not their whole -- their entire store base. It's just a fraction of their system. I'm just wondering if you have any exposure to that.” Company Representative: “Yes, it's not our policy to comment on our individual tenants and what they're doing. We could sit here all day. We have 118 tenants. And a lot of times on these calls, people get mentioned who aren't our tenants, so that's the policy we'll maintain.”

Other Major Tenants Are Also a Major Concern…
Other major tenants are mostly regional discretionary retailers, including several 2005-2007 vintage LBOs. Some tenants have already filed Chapter 11 and we believe many could be forced to liquidate

Sources for tenants: Compiled using Wall Street Research, O filings, O’s website, various press reports and O’s earnings conference calls. 1) We define a major tenant as renting 10 or more Realty Income properties OR involved in a sale/leaseback transaction with O for $30m or greater. 18

If a Tenant Files for Bankruptcy… Tenant bankruptcy filings raise a number of issues:
 Tenants in Chapter 11 could choose to reject their lease(s)  Vacant properties have re-leasing risk, typically require significant capital investment and brokerage commissions, and may be re-leased at materially lower rents  Tenants armed with market and/or bankruptcy leverage will likely seek to renegotiate rents


Balance Sheet Doubled from 1/1/05 – 12/31/07
During the peak of the real estate and credit bubbles, Realty Income’s assets more than doubled from $1.4bn to $3.1bn as the company became a financing source for LBOs and corporate M&A

Dividend Coverage is Minimal
Dividend coverage is minimal. Small declines in NOI will stress the company’s ability to maintain its dividend

Minimal room for error

Decline in Recurring 2009E NOI (1) 0.0% Recurring AFFO/share (2) Current annualized dividend Dividend coverage Required Dividend Decrease $1.76 $1.76 $1.71 103% NA -2.5% $1.68 $1.71 98% -2% -5.0% $1.61 $1.71 94% -6% -7.5% $1.53 $1.71 89% -11% -10.0% $1.46 $1.71 85% -15%

1) Calculation of AFFO assumes $21mm of G&A expenses, $3mm of capex and straight line rent adjustments, and $86mm of interest expense. 2) Recurring AFFO = Recurring Net Income + D&A – Cap Ex – straight line rent adjustment. 21

What Could Happen If…?
 Despite having no debt maturities until 2013, Realty Income could face significant problems if its tenants continue to go bankrupt
 Even a small decline in NOI could prevent the company from funding

its current dividend from operating cash flow  Liquidity from O’s current revolver may be at risk if there are sufficient asset writedowns or sufficient reductions in FFO(1) (2)
 Asset writedowns could be caused by tenant bankruptcies and / or declines

in real estate values
 Current cash on hand represents only about 2.5 months of dividends

 O may need to reduce its cash dividend which we expect would adversely impact its stock price
 Many retail shareholders own the stock for its monthly dividend

 We believe that O’s stock price depends on its ability to maintain its monthly dividend
1) Dividends and Other Restricted Payments covenant: Per the Credit Agreement (5/15/08), quarterly dividends and share repurchases may not exceed 95% of FFO plus preferred dividends for each of the trailing four quarters. 2) Minimum Tangible Net Worth covenant: Per the Credit Agreement (5/15/08), we estimate that O must maintain a Tangible Net Worth of ~$1.3bn and that Tangible Net Worth is currently ~$1.6bn (as of 6/30/09) implying that O has an approximate $0.3bn cushion under that credit facility. O’s Net PPE is approximately $2.8bn. 22

O’s Business Model and its Stock Price
We believe that Realty Income’s ability to grow its dividend is a function of several factors including:
1. Performance and creditworthiness of its existing tenant portfolio 2. Ability to issue equity at a valuation materially higher than private market values

We believe that if Realty Income’s stock price were to decline meaningfully, its business model could be in jeopardy


Equity Offerings: “Ceiling on Valuation”
Since 2005, Realty Income has issued equity to the public five times at an average price of $25 and at ranges from $23.79 - $26.82

Average price of equity offerings: $25.15

Denotes equity offering

Given O’s recent stock price of ~$25, we would not be surprised if Realty Income issues equity soon, based on this history

Properties Offered for Sale at a 11% Cap Rate
Current asking prices for some Ryan’s restaurants (one of O’s largest tenants) is an 11% cap rate. In comparison, Realty Income trades at a 7.3% cap rate

Management’s View on Private Market Valuations
“In talking about cap rates -- I mentioned this last quarter, but I think it really is worthwhile saying -- and that is if you look back on the 40 years that we've been doing this and kind of follow cap rates, from 2005 to 2008, we were buying kind of in the 8.4% to 8.7% cap rate range, and in those years bought about $1.5 billion worth of property. And I'd probably estimate that we were 75 to 100 basis points in cap rate above where the one-off market was, which was really a function of buying in bulk and you get a better price and a better cap rate.” “From 2003 to 2004, the caps were around 9.5, and if you go back to when we went public in '94 and take it to 2003, I went back and looked, and the cap rates from during that period were always between 10 and 11. And then going back and looking at transactions going all the way back before '94, cap rates were pretty much always up 11% or so.” “So I really think that kind of the 7 and 8 caps that you saw at retail and even some of the 9 caps on the institutional transaction, like a lot of assets in many different areas, were a function of the abundant and cheap financing that was out there, and it shouldn't be too surprising to see cap rates moving up again.”
--Tom Lewis, Realty Income, CEO Q2 2009 Conference Call

If private market cap rates today for Realty Income-type properties are between 10% - 11%, then why should Realty Income trade at a 7.3% cap rate?

Why is a ~40% premium to NAV justified?


RE Index Versus Realty Income Since 1/1/2008
Despite its tenant exposure, Realty income has outperformed the U.S. real estate index (1) by ~35% since January 1, 2008

1) As measured by iShares Dow Jones Real Estate Index Fund 29

Insider Ownership and Selling
Realty Income does not foster an ownership culture
 Despite restricted stock grants, insiders own less than 1.5% of the company  The top three executives (CEO, COO, CFO) own less than 1% of the company despite having an average tenure at the company of 18 years
 CEO, COO and CFO have not made an open market stock

purchase in over six years

Material insider selling
 On August 3, 2009, CEO Tom Lewis sold ~20% of his holdings at $23.69, below today’s stock price
 On the same day, COO Gary Malino sold ~9% of his holdings

Insider Ownership and Selling
Are Insiders and Shareholders playing on an even field?  Why should Management be permitted to sell stock knowing the identity of all tenants and their creditworthiness while shareholders are kept in the dark?  We believe that the SEC should immediately require Realty Income to disclose to all shareholders a list of its tenants and financial information sufficient to assess their creditworthiness  We believe that there is no competitive or other business reason why Realty Income should not be required to do so


“Short” Sensitivity Analysis
Stock price at various cap rates and decline rates in 2009E Cash NOI

Assuming 2009E recurring Cash NOI of $316mm, if NOI drops only 5% to 10% and O’s cap rate increases to 9.5% to 10.5%, Realty Income’s stock price could decline ~43% to ~60% from recent prices

$17.93 8.5% 9.0% 9.5% 10.0% 10.5% 11.0%

How is Management Compensated?
 Management is compensated with restricted stock, no options are granted
 In 2001, Realty Income discontinued the practice of granting stock options in favor

of only granting stock awards
 O’s 2008 10-K: “We believe that stock awards are a more appropriate incentive

to our executive officers given the focus of our business on monthly dividends”

 Vesting program for restricted stock is highly unusual
 Based on age rather than years of service  New program approved in August 2008

56 51 43 48 60 49 47 35

 We believe that Realty Income’s current shareholders are not being sufficiently compensated for the company’s tenant risk
 Shareholders and investors should demand transparency from O’s management

regarding its tenants  If tenant deterioration continues…
 Realty Income’s cash flow may not be sufficient to pay its current dividend

 We believe that the SEC should require Reality Income to disclose its tenants because without this information it is nearly impossible to value the company and its associated risks  At $25 and a 7.3% cap rate, we believe there is little downside to the short
 ~40% premium to current private market valuations  Company has historically issued stock at these levels  “Ceiling on valuation”
